being made in education, healthcare, modernization, social infrastructure, direct payments to the poorest households. and in our battle against hiv/aids, a new plan has been launched to consolidate agai -- gains that have been made in reducing the prevalence of the disease. our target is to achieve elimination and expand access to anti revival therapy -- anti- retroviral therapy for persons living with hiv/aids. the equivalent of about $80 million, the contribution to the financing of this strategic plan. but this is not enough. we are now finding ourselves in a rather ironic situation, one that is threatening the advances we've made thus far. ghana, like developing countries that have made remarkable headway in combating this disease, is becoming a victim of its own success. as the numbers of disease and rates of infection and mortality go down, so, too, to the figures in the global funding for hiv/aids programs. this leaves a considerable financing gap for many countries such as ghana that are not only trying to maintain progress but to move closer to complete eradication of the
